            Just like crossdressing, shaving off parts of a normal operating system is similar to removing parts of the male body. You manage to remove just enough to keep going until you eventually give up

        That's the thing - with a way better screen, now I can do way more than basic office work on it.
        Anything from content consumption to content creation, it's actually usable now.
        I slapped a rather nice screen on it too, 1250:1 contrast with spot-on 100% sRGB coverage.

          Are you calibrating your laptop screen?

          • 1 month ago
            Anonymous

            Yes.

            Upgrading the screen was a massive QOL upgrade. Screen, SSD and a 3940XM and you’ve got the perfect machine.

            It came with an SSD.
            I gave it a i7-3740QM, 4c8t 45W. Quite toasty already, the 55W ones would throttle to shit and perform worse.
            And I did the heatsink upgrade and such.

            >
            So, the same things you can do on your PC, but worse. Amazing.

            Do you know what a laptop is? It indeed is just a worse PC, but portable.

            what display is that?

            N140HCE-EN1
            If you have a T430 tho, get B140HAN01.3 instead. It has better fitment, is way cheaper and actually available. The picture isn't quite as good tho.

            >Replace that screen with something that can display more than ~16 shades of LED blue.
            Couldn't you just remove the screen and use a external one instead?

            That's not a laptop anymore.

            I went down this rabbit hole a year ago, being fully aware that it would be a moneysink project to a dead meme.
            I wanted to get a laptop with a budget, but I knew that if I bought a new one, or a used nu-shitpad like the T480, it would immediately become useless ewaste once I or an employer could throw a spend the couple grand necessary to get an actually good laptop that'll last.
            But a modmaxxed T430, the ultimate Thinkpad, this is just cool to own now and 10 years from now. And its plentiful Win7-era I/O has utility for retrooming already. The ultrabay has even seen datarecovery work and such.
            It also happens to fulfill my particular requirements for a really good display and an ANSI keyboard in a nordic ISO country.

            Then why did you not buy whatever cheap laptop that works? Judging by the pictures, all you ever do on your shitpad is larp with GUI-less Gentoo installation and play Touhou with a monitor connected to the laptop (as if that is supposed to be any better than playing on a PC)

        They were during covid. Now it's all over the place, from $50 to $140, while in 2024 they're significantly less of a value. 2c4t and 3cm thickness and 1366*768 TN for ~$100, come on now.
        There's been a thread a few weeks ago, Intel 8-10th gen Thinkpads with the oldest one being T490, go for $140-$160.

            Since 8th - not much, 8th gen is the groundbreaking generation when they went from 2c4t to 4c8t in i5 - and i7, for that matter. Sandy Bridge has nothing against that. Except maybe *MQ CPUs if supported by the BIOS.

    You're doing it wrong, you need to spend at least a week ricing a window manager and upload your dotfiles to Github.
